Dr. Flashback gives this 'day in history' show a good review back in 04

Reviewer: dr. flashback - - April 14, 2004
Subject: top 10!

Although 1977 was a year of consistant great shows, it's May and October that for me, the Dead were really at their peak. This one and 10/2 stand out in particular. The 1st Set is long and features nice performances from Jerry on Dire Wolf and Roses, plus a well-jammed Let it Grow.
Set 2 just smokes from start to finish. The long Estimated>Eyes jam evolves into an early Space, before launching into another great 77 St. Stephen>NFA pairing. Then Jerry pulls out a rare Black Peter (only 6 in 77) and brings the house down. One to add to your 1977 collection for sure!
Dr. Flashback :-)

No kidding. The Doc's and Purple Gel's feedback generally indicate a good show.

Hope all is well with you BDevil.

Yep, that 80's show looks like a hot one. I'll get to it later today too. So many shows, so little time...

Listening to '80 now - good good good good show - so far 10-29 is proving to be a fruitful day in GD history. Loved the '77 and now a wonderful '80

Oops I'm listening to 11-29-80 not 10-29 :o
